Who Is Michael Black?
A Brutal and Stunning Novel of Epic Proportions.
A brutal and stunning novel of epic proportions, Who Is Michael Black? delves deep into the human dimensions of the criminal underworld. This gritty novel tells the tale of Malcolm Black, a Miami drug dealer viciously betrayed by his longtime partner— and forced to flee the city: a refugee from all he has ever known.
Taking up with a foreign drug cartel, Malcolm climbs the ranks to ruthless kingpin; but revenge, and the family he left behind, continues to burn within him.
In true outlaw fashion, Malcolm returns to Miami and exacts his vengeance: eviscerating his ex-partner and the entire drug syndicate: wiping out his whole past, it seems.
But when Malcolm tries for personal redemption, reaching out to the girlfriend and son he abandoned, a new wave of troubles strike— the dogged pursuit of the FBI.
From there, the novel takes a set of stupendous twists and turns, drawing the reader into an arc of suspense and action which will leave him reeling.
What Marcus T. Naef has achieved with Who Is Malcolm Black? is nothing short of magnificent. A vivid, chilling, and at times touching portrayal of ambition and human folly, the book manages to bring the reader into a lurid world of criminality while keeping the characters relatable and even likeable. Naef is a true talent with a strong command of prose and cinematic action. I loved Who Is Malcolm Black from start to finish— and couldn’t stop thinking about it even weeks after reading the novel. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a love of excitement, grit, and suspense.
